Naltrexone Doctors in Canada

I have been trying to convince my doctor to proscribe me LDN but he has yet to do so because he wants to talk to other doctors who have prescribed it before. In case he decides not to prescribe it to me can any one tell me of any doctors in Canada preferably around Vancouver who will prescribe it. I also heard that you can buy Naltrexone online is this true and if so where can I buy it. Last but not least what dosage of Naltrexone has worked for you?

Thanks

Yeah I was able to find a doctor, once I found out that natropaths that have taken a special course can prescribe it, it was easy to find some one willing to prescribe it to me. But I would still love to discuss LDN with you. Right now I don't really know if it is working, cause I am currently on a tapering schedule of prednisone so I am getting mixed results. Some days are good because Of I assume the LDN and some days are bad because of the prednisone tapering.

This sounds stupid, but I really want to find out more. I checked out the Facebook page, but it has a "closed group" status. Can I join or would I be imposing? I am on Remicade, but I have no confidence that it will work for the long term, either that or the Insurance will quit covering it and then I am out. LDN is something I want to try.

Hi Eric,

I am wondering if you have located a GP in Vancouver BC, prescribing LDN. I am in the greater Vancouver area and would like to start this treatment.

Thank you,

Christina

I wonder if you have found a GP who will prescribe low dose Naltrexone??

Just came across this site because of the mention of this drug by a few of you living in Vancouver.

I have done a little online research and it seems that this drug can be prescribed on a special "limited coverage" basis by application to the Ministry of Health.

If you have done this could you let me know the details??
